Up-Date - Rig #6 from "100 Small Boat Rigs" ("103 Sailing Rigs")


Back in early April I wrote an entry about the above rig. You can find the article here

At the time I wrote the piece I didn't have any sailing pictures showing the modified rig in action. Now I can show you a couple. They are low-resolution, but they give a good idea of how much the rig has been improved.

The mast used to bend back alarmingly when sheet and vang were tensioned - now everything stays where it should be and the boat's behaviour has been improved dramatically.
Setting out for a day of pleasant sailing with a vastly improved rig
